Youville Centre is a non-profit organization

Donate Now Through!\As with most similar organizations in Canada, it's an ongoing struggle for us to come up with the money needed each year to pay for our many programs and services. We depend completely on both public and private funds for our existence. For that reason, if you'd like to help us we'd be very, very pleased to hear from you.

Over the years, many of our donors have used their contributions to mark a special event: to honour someone's birthday or anniversary, as a graduation or memorial gift or just to say thank you to someone special in their lives. Whatever your reason for giving, we can assure you that any donation you make to the Youville Centre will be put to very good use.

Of course, as a federally registered charity, we issue tax receipts for all donations. (Our charitable registration number is: 11884 8456 RR0001)

Donate Now Through!\We do our best to make giving as easy as possible. If you click on the "Donate Now" button to the right, you'll be connected to a secure web server where you can make your donation with just a few clicks of your mouse. In a world where you can buy your books online, make travel arrangements online, and even buy your groceries online, making your charitable donation this way as well seems like a natural thing to do.

However, if you'd prefer to deal with a real person instead of a computer when making your donation, please call (613) 231-5150 ext.112. When calling us by telephone, you may use your VISA, Mastercard or AmEx card to make your payment. You can also write us a cheque. Just make it out to "Youville Centre" and mail it to Youville Centre, 150 Mann Avenue, Ottawa ON K1N 8P4. (Don't forget to include your return address.)
